BEAUTY DIARY: GAMZE BIRAN

What is your grooming ritual that makes you feel the best?

I like to take time for myself in the bathroom after a long day. Lighting my candles, turning on my music, post-shower masks, peelings… I like to be alone with myself and to take time for myself. It has also become a ritual to go to bed early before going to sleep, to evaluate the end of the day, and to do my night care and get ready for sleep.

What do you do daily for your skin care?

When I wake up in the morning and when I go to bed in the evening, I never neglect my serums and creams, but what we eat, drink and even our thoughts affect our skin. Therefore, eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, writing down what’s on my mind even for 10 minutes when I wake up in the morning, meditating or going for a walk are also a module of care for me.

You attach great importance to sustainability and you continue this in your pleasantness routine. Can you give us some tips on this subject that we can apply in the house?

When it comes to sustainability, we should not think of changing all the products we use quickly, but when buying a new cosmetic product as it is finished, we can pay attention to the fact that it is natural, does not test on animals, has vegan content, and is produced with ethical production responsible for local producers. Sustainable packaging is gaining more and more importance, and we can act by considering the effects of the work we put our hands on on nature. We can turn to nature-friendly habits such as washable make-up cottons and solid shampoos, or in fact, fragrant soaps, which were in our homes before, can be the most natural and sustainable alternative to shower gels.

What is your favorite natural goodness recipe?

Coffee scrub. As a true coffee addict, I love to mix the coffee grounds with coconut oil and a few drops of essential oil in a jar after drying them in the sun and massaging my skin in the shower. Definitely try it for smooth legs before summer.

What colors and works do you use most in your make-up?

Absolutely nude. In summer, my hand goes to peach tones as well.

What raises your energy and what makes you feel more appropriate?

Being in nature, watching the sunset, having a nice meal, discovering a new place, traveling, spending time with the people I love, taking a walk, working, producing content is good for me.
